I am working with mother board GA-990FXA-UD3 CPU: AMD PHENOM II X6 VIDEO: GTX 550 TI HARD DRIVE 2.2TB MEMORY: 16GB CORSAIR. I have been trying to install Mac OS X 10.6 snow leopard for about 4weeks now. I have the files to install them but I believe I am doing something wrong. I can not get it to boot on its own. I got as close as booting and it looks for the mach_kernel_test7 and then it doesn’t boot. I have all the down loads from this site but I need a someone to really carry me threw this install. Please somebody help
mobo: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 CPU: AMD PHENOM II X6 1090T VIDEO: ASUS GTX 550 TI MEM: 4GB. I have tried your method and got close put not close enough. I have all the files plus some. The bootloader is not used but you have us down load it. If you can tell me why I get to boot but it ask for mach_kernel.test7 when I put the file where you told me to put that would be helpful.
